Support for cern like Pass/Fail proxy limits?

Hi all,
  I have the fun task of finding a replacement caching software for ~100
K12 sites. We are currently using Cern httpd 3.0 for the caching proxy
server. This works well for light use, but tends to fork excessively
in certain instances (ie. when browser connections hang) and cause problems.
Each server is a Pentium based machine running FreeBSD 2.1.0 with ~48 meg
of memory or more.
  Squid seems to be the perfect replacement (and a damn speedy cache), but
I can't seem to see any way to restrict or redirect URL's similar to Cern's
Pass and Fail commands. Does someone have a plug in module that creates
this functionality (and uses the exact same syntax as Cern :)? Possibly
working with the URL Redirector in 1.1.beta23.
  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
